What is the source of your information please.
I am assuming that Royal mail wont on the grounds that if the parcel is to big or to heavy then they will send it by Parcel force and reading PF list of items that wont get insurance the scope will come under the same category as Telescope, it says telescopes and similar items.
I will go to the post office in the morning and try Royal mail next day delivery.
